About Jeff Robb

Drawing on his studies in fine art holography, Jeff Robb creates lenticular photographs as a means of experimenting with three-dimensional images. His holographic works are portals that transport the viewer into other worlds, which appear to have their own dimensions and physical properties. Robb is best known for his images of floating female nudes; the women are alien- and wraith-like, and they appear to undergo a metamorphosis as the lenticular photograph’s illusion is revealed. While Robb’s ultimate goal is to push the limits of what a photograph can be, he also explores the possibilities of three-dimensional objects. As such, he creates bronze sculptures that merge cutting-edge modeling technology with historic casting techniques.
